This December Danny Boyle’s James Bond 25 starts shooting at Pinewood Studios.
However apart from Craig, the film’s title, plot and cast remain very much a mystery.
But now Bond site MI6 HQ have come across a casting call for Bond 25’s main villain, a female role – likely a Bond girl – and a henchman.
The same source accurately provided the casting call for Dave Bautista’s Hinx for Spectre, so it looks like this information can be trusted. See the description below.
Male Leading Role
Playing age: 30’s – 60’s
Russian. (Also open to suggestions of actors from the Balkans or similar) Must speak fluent English.

It seems Bond will be facing the Russians this time around and the female lead is apparently likely to be the male villain’s partner and a possible Bond girl.
Nevertheless recent rumours have claimed the main villain is a female, with Helena Bonham Carter and Angelina Jolie circling the roles.
Of course the character could turn out to be the real baddie, as was the shock twist with Electra King in The World Is Not Enough.
Meanwhile Benedict Cumberbatch and Mark Strong could potentially play the male Russian villain.
